RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has bagged three of the top four seats of central panel of the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections on Friday. The right wing organization repeated their last year’s performance, winning the posts of president, vice president and joint secretary. Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) settled for just one, the secretary’s post. Ashwit Dahiya of the ABVP defeated NSUI’s Chetna Tyagi for the top post by a margin of over 19,000 votes. The posts of vice president and joint secretary were won by ABVP’s Pradeep Tanwar and Shivangi Kharwal by a margin of 8,574 and 2,914 votes respectively. NSUI bagged the secretary’s post with its candidate Ashish Lamba defeating ABVP’s Yogi Rathee by a margin of 2,053 votes.
